"Do you even know who the fark I am, you idiot?" Herschmann snapped back.
"Yeah, you're Patrick Cipollone," Byrne said.
"Wrong! Wrong, you idiot!"


Delicious.

Lyons pointed out to Powell that their incompetence went beyond their lawsuits being thrown out for standing. "You somehow managed to misspell the word 'District' three different ways in your suits," he said pointedly.

hahaha!  oh wow!

I've heard enough out of Trump that at first I wasn't sure that was a joke.

FTA, "Powell began this meeting with the same baseless claim that now has her facing a $1.3 billion defamation lawsuit: She told the president thatDominion Voting Systems had rigged their machines to flip votes from Trump to Biden and that it was part of an international communist plot to steal the election for the Democrats."


Space alien lizard zionists we're actually really responsible for it.  Oh and some Witches too.... cant forget them.

Then again when I speak about how the GRU in coordination with Ron Watkins the Mercer family and their Cambridge Analytica.  All in  cahoots with Rodger Stone ran a psyop on the  people. With evidence and even confessions.  I don't get believed for some reason.

Truly they are all sheep.

FTFA: an unending sea of garbage churned up by the bottom feeders

Yeah, that sounds about right. If only the "liberal" media would describe it like that, people wouldn't pretend to take it so seriously.

Like it or not, many people have to be told what to think. And what many of them are being told now is that the garbage is just as valid as observable reality.
 
2022-02-02 3:14:09 PM

Yes, imaginary things almost always do, LOL.

LOL, yes, in the real world, those are called "crimes." There are all kinds of TV shows and movies and podcasts about them. Law & Order. Tiger King. Serial. To Catch a Predator. etc.

Byrne kept attacking the senior White House staff in front of Trump. "They've already abandoned you," he told the president aggressively.
 
2022-02-02 3:26:05 PM  
FTFA: The president seemed truly to believe the election was stolen, and his overriding sentiment was, let's give this a shot.

I'm going to disagree with this. I don't believe he thought the election was "stolen." He just didn't want to be labeled a loser and figured why not try to cheat his way out of it, just like he has with everything else he's ever been involved with, including his marriages.

The only thing he believes in is the only thing he cares about, ever: himself.
 
2022-02-02 3:26:37 PM  
But Powell, fixing on Trump, continued to elaborate on a fantastical election narrative involving Venezuela, Iran, China and others. She named a county in Georgia where she claimed she could prove that Dominion had illegally flipped the vote.
Herschmann interrupted to point out that Trump had actually won the Georgia county in question: "So your theory is that Dominion intentionally flipped the votes so we could win that county?"

FTFA:
These laws were, in the view of Powell, Flynn and the others, the key to unlocking extraordinary powers for Trump to stay in office beyond Jan. 20. Their theory was that because foreign enemies had stolen the election, all bets were off and Trump could use the full force of the United States government to go after Dominion.

LOL, "foreign enemies stole the election," just trust us. Our imaginary evidence is just as good as real evidence, we swear. Believing something is true is exactly the same as that thing actually being true. Duh. It's science.
 
2022-02-02 3:30:04 PM  
FTFA: Then Byrne chimed in: "There are guys with big guns and badges who can get these things." Herschmann couldn't believe it. "What are you, three years old?" he asked.

LOL, again, a Congressional Medal of Honor for this guy. Seriously.
 
2022-02-02 3:33:02 PM  
FTFA: "What's not appropriate?" Herschmann shot back. Turning to Powell, he said, "Why don't you repeat to Rudy what you just told the president in the Oval Office - that he has no idea about the case and that he only just began to understand it a few hours ago."

OMG, this shiat is so amazing, I want to take it behind the gym and get it pregnant. Or let it get me pregnant. Whatever.

LOL, they were stopped. By the White House lawyers who actually know about the law. Didn't even take an army. Just 3 lawyers. Or 4, I lost count.

Ex-President Useless farkwad is not still sitting in the White House. He's holding pathetic rallies to a handful of idiots with nothing better to do.

But thanks for the despair trolling, I guess. Can't have a Fark thread without it, apparently.

One participant later recalled: "When Rudy's the voice of reason, you know the meeting's not going well."

Lol.

It's not optimism. It's observable reality.

They were stopped. I guess you didn't read the linked story.

And BTW, notice what the lawyer, Herschmann, did. He didn't say, "Oh, hey, let's listen to what the nice lady and her friends have to say, there's no such thing as a bad idea." He didn't say, "We'd better listen to these idiots because if we don't, they might get mad." He didn't say, "Well, that's a very unique and creative solution to the problem of losing an election."

He told them they were farking idiots, asked them to produce the "evidence" they were babbling about and then when they couldn't, he basically told them to go fark themselves.

It's probably the only reason Ex-President Useless farkwad listened to him, though Useless farkwad obviously wanted to listen to the idiots.

oh i read it in its entirety and did appreciate the sensible characters expressing their voices of reason in the room but IMO this should have never taken place. Sidney Powell should have never been given time. these people are farking crazy and they are treated like they deserve to be listened to or have something to contribute.

you are right though, i may be overreacting but that's this is me, reacting.

No, I think he believes everything he says because his tapioca brain has lost the ability to distinguish between his thoughts and the truth.

Trump was 'muttering, I won, I won, like 'Mad King George' after election defeat, report says
